Spain and Portugal are countries with large maritime histories and for more and more people the Algarve is one of their favourite holiday destinations.
The ideal climate, the excellent sailing conditions and the crystal clear water makes sailing along the coast a sailors dream come true. Impressive rock formations alternate with sandy beaches and the dolphins playing with the bow of the yacht can take you by surprise.
At the end of the day you can moor in one of the many modern marinas, a picturesque fisherman village or anchor in one of the beautiful bays. When the evening falls and the lights ashore go on, the ambiance changes. Not only can you enjoy sun, sea and beach but also a local meal and plenty of vino!
If you have sufficient sailing experience including coastal navigation it is possible to rent bareboat. Alternatively, why not take a skippered charter and let someone else do the work.
If you are interested in this kind of sailing then contact us to get the latest information on what yachts are available as there are different opportunities almost daily.
Finally there is a sailing school, which is open in the summer months, and runs reasonably priced courses as well as renting dinghies etc. on an hourly or daily basis.
